Event Details


Founded at the end of 2010 by Felecia Ford, Johny Broomust, and guitarist Justin Lindsey, BROOMDUST CARAVAN was an immediate northern New Mexico favorite. Drawing on the outrageous treasure of musical talent in Santa Fe – the band released its 2011 “Heavy Rescue” EP on the groundbreaking Frogville Records label to great critical acclaim and was voted Best New Band in the 2011 Santa Fe Reporter Readers Poll. The Broomdust Caravan has since become an epic Cosmic Country tour de force with a solid following in northern New Mexico, extending into west Texas, south Colorado, and beyond. And the rotating line up has solidified into an incredibly tight band with every musician writing songs and providing creative input.

From the first down-beat in 2002, through tours with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, The Greencards have won hearts and acclaim for their multi dimentional Americana vision. Their new GRAMMY nominated album, Sweetheart of the Sun, produced by Gary Paczosa (John Prine, Alison Krauss, Sarah Jarosz) is filled with songs that reference water, along with the often-related concepts of motion and travel. The Greencards co-founders Kym Warner and Carol Young focused on those aspects of their lives to craft a unified sonic document, one that catalogues their journeys while transporting listeners to a beautiful, welcoming world. Drawing on their Aussie upbringings, their American experiences and their restless natures, The Greencards use imagery and instrumentation to evoke moods and suggest movement; the songs themselves ebb and flow like tides.
